About Me

This reminds me of when I'd have to write my bio to go into the programs of community theatre productions. A few past credits, a joke about being a much bigger deal than I was (which was only half a joke, because I actually thought I was a much bigger deal than I was).

My name is Liam Miller, I live in Sydney, Australia, married to a kind and talented woman named Heather. I am the Uniting Church Chaplain at Macquarie University. I am currently studying a Masters of Divinity through Pilgrim Theological College (part of the University of Divinity). All this leads me to hope in the liberating power of the beautiful and messy Christian story, which I think still holds the title of the greatest story ever told, though Avatar: The Last Airbender // The Legend of Korra is a close second. I live in a house with Heather, our daughter Shoshana, my brother Tim, sister Hannah, and a dog named Zeus who's afraid of thunder.

My favourite people to read are James Cone, Elizabeth Johnson, and Michael Chabon. My favourite filmmakers to watch are Powell & Pressburger, Terrence Malick, Sophia Coppola, the Coen Brothers, and Hayao Miyazaki. And my favourite person to listen to is Tom Waits, who is head and shoulders above everyone else.   

About This

Don't think of what you read here as some set in stone final decree on faith and its expression. Rather, imagine you're overhearing someone practice a conversation in a shower, which just happened to find its way online (in love), but will certainly need to be rinsed and repeated before we're through. That way, if like Job's friends, I have to stand before the whirlwind to answer for my words, I can say, "it was just a practice".
